Idris Elba’s Luther Coming to The Big Screen?

'Luther' Creator Eyes Movie Version

It is looking good for fans of hard-hitting British cop drama Luther, starring Idris Elba, with a possible big-screen outing coming into focus.

With the BBC TV show created by Neil Cross ending after three seasons and the team ruling out more TV outings — Elba was a producer as well as the show's star — there is now talk of a movie version. Cross has told British media that he is aiming to get a movie version made next year, having written a script as a prequel detailing how Elba's character, John Luther, ends up the dark, conflicted and hardened detective in the TV show.
